A Cool Devotion

A Cool Devotion

BandRockPop

A bit of 90 and alternative Rock, a bit of pop, a lot of bleeding heart...rage, spleen and melody. We're not so young anymore but we're still alive and kicking! We love rock and what we do as it gives a sort of relief where anything else fails.

Biography

Maximilian is the starter of this project, it comes from a reaction to a lifestile that doesn't belong to him and all lyrics come from reflections to past and present situations.Tony agreeded to lend his great guitar to this project, then Steve and Max Mancieri joined us.
Our album mood is far from positive, it's a kind of reaction to bad love stories and the strencht you need to carry on when your own world seems to disintegrate without a trace.The album title is about this, to bleed and go through bad moments in order not to lose yourself in pain and rage, trying to trasform these things in energy to go on.
Influences goes from U2, The Cure, to Nine Inch Nails, Marillion and Nirvana. The rest is up to you to discover.

Lyrics

Petrified

Written By: Massimiliano Rizzo

Always and ever like this
there is just this f***in' way to exist.
Nothins seems real but this longing for you
I keep your ghost deep down inside
it scratches my soul just like a knife
for all this senceless useless past
is still here to last
Only you made me understand
how much i'm sick and damned
and i'm still drowning in quicksand
where are you, where is your hand?

I'm petrified
can't stand this living lie
where there where you and I
out of the corner of my eye
nothing like you, I'm petrified.

Always here under this rain
There is no way to hide this shame
Everyone's got one i'm the only without
I'm holding on to what's no more
left with the memory of a whore
and there is nothing i can do
I wish I was you
Only you made me understand
how much i'm sick and damned
and i'm still drowning in quicksand
where are you, where is your hand?

I'm petrified
can't stand this living lie
where there where you and I
out of the corner of my eye
nothing like you, I'm petrified.

Stop By You

Written By: Massimiliano Rizzo-Paolo M.

I'm so dead taht i start to stink
I'm so sad that i can't laugh
I'm so weak that i can't react
And i'm so stupid that I believed in you.

Use me again, treat me like a dog
Suck my blood until the last drop
Ruin my life and go ahead to mock
You're so beautiful and cold
If only i could stop, stop by you(2)
If only i could stop, stop by you(2)
will you allow me to?

I'm so ashamed i can't even think
I'm so thick I can't stop to sink
I'm so messed up i can't even breathe,
And I'm so stupid
that I thought you could have been my cure

Use me again, treat me like a dog
Suck my blood until the last drop
Ruin my life and go ahead to mock
You're so beautiful and cold
If only i could stop, stop by you(2)
If only i could stop, stop by you(2)
will you allow me to?

I do need you again and again
I'll play your game again and again
I'll understand you again and again
i will always love you again and again

Use me again, treat me like a dog
Suck my blood until the last drop
Ruin my life and go ahead to mock
You're so beautiful and cold
If only i could stop, stop by you(2)
If only i could stop, stop by you(2)
will you allow me to?

Caged

Written By: Massimiliano Rizzo

There's something in your eyes
that makes me wanna fight
there's something in your soul
that makes my blood run cold
there's something in your grit
that makes me feel a s**t
there's something in your glance
for what I've got no defence

And I feel caged here while you're out there
what can i do to show you How much I care?
And I feel caged here while you're out there
All your world I wish I could share

There's something in your mood
that kicks away my blues
There's something in your smile
that makes me feel alive
There's something in your voice
that makes me wish i had a choice
There's something in your moves
that makes me bleeding through

And I feel caged here while you're out there
what can i do to show you How much I care?
And I feel caged here while you're out there
All your world I wish I could share

I do belong to you my dear
I'd sell my soul just to have you near
I'll change my life, I'll try my best
and maybe you will do the rest

And I feel caged here while you're out there
what can i do to show you How much I care?
And I feel caged here while you're out there
All your world I wish I could share
